Southwark

The location from which the London borough of Southwark takes its name. Found to the east of Waterloo, Southwark has a slightly offbeat feel, despite its zone 1 location. For bars and restaurants head to The Cut. The traffic clogged Blackfriars Road is lined with hotels housing tourists.

For years sitting on the bus I thought Southwark was just a heartless traffic clogged thoroughfare up the Blackfriars Road into central London. Now I'm not saying it's the greatest place in London but there is more to it than I had realised. The Cut is pretty lively - lots of nice restaurants and the Windmill pub, which I found to be very decent. I also stumbled across the little strip of bars and restaurants under the arches on Isabella street - very cool!
